Honey Harvest Festival @ Voelker Orth Museum
Aug 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Honey Harvest Festival @ Voelker Orth Museum

The bees are busy in the summer and honey harvest time arrives in August at the Voelker Orth Museum. The Honey Harvest Festival is a perfect time to get the buzz on honey bees! The afternoon is packed with bee-facts, fun and bee-inspired creative activities for all ages.

The Voelker Orth Museum’s garden is home to a thriving bee colony and their honey is harvested each summer. Visitors can earn about honey harvesting and sample different types of honey.

Beekeeper Helen Colhoun-Wassinger demonstrates how honey is separated from the honey combs for bottling after it has been removed from the hive. Visitors will also learn about the life of bees and the types of plants honey bees like. Beeswax candle-making, bee bean-bags, and other crafts are offered along with some light refreshments. The Festival is also the first day that the Museum is selling its 2019 bottled honey.
